Established in December of 2008, Creme de les Femmes is Indy’s second longest performing burlesque troupe. Founded by Lilith Centfranc, godmother of Indianapolis burlesque; Lady Lenore Evermore, also original burlesque performer; Jezebel Sinfell, still performing today; Ophelia Plenty; Vera Verboten; and Anastasia Euphoria. Crème de les Femmes was also instrumental in establishing Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Indianapolis branch.
Creme de les Femmes has performed all over the city, from the grand stage at the Athenaeum, to the Legends Lounge at Talbott Street, to the punk rock staple of the Melody Inn and Birdy’s. You can most frequently see Creme de les Femmes at Indy’s Jukebox.
Crème de les Femmes is currently headed by Hard Mona, Veronica Belvedere and Jezebel Sinfell. The three have been working together since 2011 to produce some of the most creative shows Indianapolis burlesque has to offer! Including annual Nerdy Flirty Burlesque: A Gen Con Tribute, Hooray for Hollywood, Tim Burton Burlesque and more.
Creme de les Femmes has grown over the years, both in troupe members and community involvement. Creme de les Femmes participated twice in a fundraiser for the Rivoli Theater renovation. They have also incorporated food donation for the Julian Center with shows and look forward to giving back to community even more.
